MATTERS NOT REQUIRING BOARD ACTION
National Core Arts Standards Revision Update [P-12/CE (D) 1] – The Committees were updated on the newly released National Core Arts Standards and discussed New York State’s process of surveying arts teachers for their feedback concerning the new standards. Department staff worked with five arts professional associations and the New York State Alliance for Arts Education (NYSAAE) to develop a survey of New York State arts educators to gather feedback concerning the new National Core Arts Standards in relation to the New York State Learning Standards for the Arts. With the assistance of the arts professional associations, staff will analyze the responses by arts discipline and provide the Board with recommendations later this year.
